SPEAKER, TEACHER, ENTREPRENEUR
WHY BOOK ME AS A SPEAKER
I’ve been there.
I have spoken at many events over the years at a national level. I have been a paid speaker at the National Writing Conference professional event. I have spoken at several WordCamps. I have also been a teacher for years. I know what works and what doesn’t when it comes to engaging a room and making sure your audience learns and is entertained.

I was a radio DJ in college. I learned to speak well and enunciate for interviews. I did the news and weather along with the music.
I’m always prepared. I can provide notes and talking points for any interview. I am also good at adapting on the fly for keeping an audience’s attention.We could trade interviews and speaking engagements. I am developing a podcast and there is always a need for speakers at BlogCamp.
